Industry Briefs

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued favorable environmental assessments (EA) for two Dominion Marcellus Shale-related projects in Pennsylvania and New York: the Tioga Area Expansion Project and the Sabinsville-to-Morrisville Project. Because they are in the same geographic region, FERC reviewed the projects in a single EA [CP12-19, CP12-20]. The Tioga Area Expansion, estimated to cost $67 million, calls for the construction of 15 miles of 24-inch diameter pipeline in Tioga County, PA, and minor modifications to several existing Dominion facilities to provide a total of up to 270,000 Dth/d of firm transportation. About 150,000 Dth/d of the capacity would be delivered to Leidy in north-central Pennsylvania at an existing interconnect with Transcontinental Pipe Line, while the remaining capacity would be delivered to a new interconnect with Texas Eastern Transmission at Dominion’s Crayne Compressor Station in Greene County, PA. The Sabinsville-to-Morrisville Project would allow Tennessee Gas Pipeline to move its receipt point from Dominion south from North Sheldon, NY, to Sabinsville, PA, in Tioga County. The project, which would cost an estimated $17 million, would provide up to 92,000 Dth/d to Tennessee.
